Guitar man Pete Anderson's brand of original blues is thoroughly contemporary and deeply imbued with the brawny heritage of his native Detroit. Anderson is also an acutely self-possessed perfectionist, yet those qualities never detract from the stunning musicality with which he has long distinguished himself. No ham-fisted bar-band blues rocker he; every song is a study in elegant, spontaneous combustion, at once earthy and emotionally desperate but put across with an intoxicating combination of impeccable technique and soulful involvement. You can hear this cat once a week for two months straight (he also gigs every Monday at Burbank's Moose Lodge), and he'll never play a song the same way twice. This kind of elevated musical kapow is exactly what we all need more of.
